Hello John and doves,
A question is being asked in this 'letter' that will stir the interest of many of the "Bereans" on this site! Enjoy and search the scriptures, Lauren
WHEN SHALL THE COMING OF THE 'SON OF MAN' BE
In Matthew 24 and Luke 17 we are told that on the day the Son of man is revealed, it will be just like in the days of Noah, they will be eating, drinking, getting married and engaged, also like in the days of Lot they will be buying, selling, planting, and building.
Just as then, "sudden destruction" comes, and it will be like as a flood will come, lightning will flash and light up the sky from east to west, while fire and sulphur will rain down from heaven and destroy them all.
Those chapters are critical as to THE TIMING of the “revealing of the Messiah”.
The majority of ‘Christendom’ who were indoctrinated by the prophecy “gurus” of the 70’s and 80’s, either believe the Messiah returns and ‘raptures’ them to heaven and they return with him to earth when he establishes his Kingdom, during the Millennium.
There is another group that believe they’ll go through tribulation, be tested if necessary and not take the mark, be martyred and be part of the ‘great resurrection’ on the last day.
MY QUESTION IS;
If the ‘battle of Armageddon’ takes place before the “7th” trumpet and the ‘seven’ vials are poured out after the battle, and the Messiah returning at the "7th" trumpet, WHEN AND WHERE IS ALL THIS marrying and buying and selling taking place "that shall also be in the days of the Son of mans revealing"? Luke 17:26
And WHERE will “two women be grinding at the mill together and two people be in one bed?
The world will be in total chaos during the last 40 days, with the 'seventh trumpet" blowing approximately 10 days before the Millennial kingdom begins, it'll be at this time, Satan and his angels will prepare the world for total destruction!
The text; Luke 17:32 Remember Lot’s wife 33 Whoever seeks to gain his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life will preserve it. 34 I tell you, in that night there will be two in one bed; one will be taken and the other left. 35 There will be two women grinding together; one will be taken and the other left.” 37 And they said to him, “Where, Lord?” He said to them, “Where the body is, there the eagles will be gathered together.”
Yes, a great separation is about to happen, but its nothing like the prophecy “gurus” of the 70’s and 80’s have waxed over us, that has now become 'basic' doctrine!
Remember, Satan and his angels are going to be cast out of heaven and allowed to pursue the “offspring of the woman” for a “time, times and half time”, Revelation 12:14-17
What has been overlooked IS THE FACT that our “advocate” the Messiah, Yeshua who has been standing at the right hand of his Father, rebuking the ‘accusations’ of Satan, will now have no need to remain there, with Revelation 12:10 giving us THE WHY.
Then I heard a loud voice in heaven saying, “NOW have come God’s victory, power and kingship, AND THE AUTHORITY OF HIS MESSIAH; BECAUSE the Accuser of our brothers, who accuses them day and night before God, HAS BEEN THROWN OUT!
That "one will be taken and one will be left" separation, is speaking of those with the "testimony of Yeshua who keep the commandments" as being part of the living body of the Messiah.
It is he, being revealed as the "great Shepherd" fulfilling Revelation 12:14-17 because it is Him who nourishes and ‘shepherds’ the woman in the wilderness.
This is the proper interpretation, there is another group!
It is there, in the wilderness, he will fulfill the “great Shepherd” role of Hebrews 13:20 and many Old Testament texts with Ezekiel 34:11-16 and Jeremiah 23:3-8 being prime examples, along with many others.
The other who is left, the dead, rotting corpse will be just that, and they are left because of the “flood just as in the days of Noah”, that is described in detail in Isaiah 28:2.
It will cover all the earth and I believe, last for three days, Isaiah 28:19-21, and will give the vultures and all birds of ‘carrion’, a feast day!
This is the “storm of the LORD” Jeremiah 23:19-20 and Jeremiah 30:23-24 warn us to understand perfectly of its coming. Why?
The Messiah comes in it, with the clouds as 'the dust of his feet' and establishes his Kingdom on earth. While Satan and his angels arrive in it on that “cloudy and dark day” and pursues the “hearer’s of the word” and the “foolish”.
They never expected the Messiah to arrive on Passover, thereby their lamps weren’t lit and they were but “hearers” of the word. Not doing the "commandments and keeping the testimony of Yeshua", they were pursued by Satan and the antichrist "wore them out" for a time, times and dividing time" Daniel 7:25.
May His Kingdom come.
May His will be done.
On earth as it is in heaven…
Giving Him the glory, an Ezekiel 33:6 watching one REPENT, the Kingdom of God is at hand and the "authority of His Messiah", make your "redemption" SURE
